. that means we may have to take a deal that gets us on the right path even if it does not give us the right structure. we will have the opportunity to get on the right structure and we will have the money to deal with it. it means we have to deal with the deficit before we are ever going to resolve all of the issues in health care and tax reform. i want to be sure that people do not have the sense that if we do not solve the entire 70 five- year, 150 year deficit issue, that anything short of that is a failure. there is no public-policy issue we have solved 75 years into the future. it is a result of inflated expectations and rhetoric to expect we will solve this problem 75 years out, or 100 years out in the future. my message is, let's not the perfect be the enemy of the good. if we can get onto a good path, let's take it and work from there to a better structure. >> i agree with that but let me be more optimistic about tax reform. this may be a moment where we dropped the impediment of incrementalism in tax reform which is fatal because then you are arguing about whose ox gets gored. this

is not have the power -- does have the power of discretion on the case by case basis. it cannot be used to systematically dismantle our laws. the supreme court noted that the president's constitutional power to enforce our laws does not imply that they can forbid their execution. president obama understood this winnie admitted last year that "there are laws on the books that congress has passed said the administration cannot just suspend deportations through executive order." president obama has broken his promise. this decision to grant administrative amnesty on a mass scale ignores the rule of law. the amnesty agenda is a win for illegal immigrants but a loss for americans. when illegal immigrants are allowed to live and work in the u.s., unemployed american workers have to compete for scarce jobs. with 23 million americans unemployed or underemployed, this amnesty only makes their lives harder. the amnesty is also a magnet for fraud. many illegal immigrants will falsely claimed that they came to the u.s. as children and this administration refuses to take the steps necessary to check
accomplishment. i hope i don't get in trouble, but i really like her. i appreciate her ability to work with us, work with everybody. she is somebody who you never have to guess where she stands on an issue, and i admire and appreciate her so much for that. i've worked with her on issues going back for many, many years. i really, again, say i appreciate what she's doing. she has great genes. her mother and father each served as mayor of a small town in maine, a place called caribou. and i have really -- i don't have fond memories of caribou because in my, ihink it was my 1998 race, we we, this great mailing that we did, one of my consultants from nevada, instead of having deer, they had caribou on my campaign literature. it took me awhile to figure that one out. i'm sure the town of caribou is bigger than my campaign spot. her family ran a lumber business. her father was also a state senator. i am confident that susan has learned toe the senator that she is because of bill cohen. i had the pleasure of serving with this good man from maine. i served as a junior member when he was chairman of the
you. u.s. why there are so many ads. there was the old line saying 80% of the money spent on advertising is wasted. we do not know which part it is. you have all the data on ad buys. what are you seeing in terms of new developments? >> thank you for having me here. let me speak about that and give you my take on how this all matters. even in the age of nano targeting with, why we see money spent on local spot television. why it is so negative. let me agree with lynn about why this is an exciting project. jeremy is like the cool reporter. the rest of us are the political scientist nerds. [laughter] you are a geek. lynn was talking about -- this is difficult to measure with precision what the effect of advertising is. the person who bought the george w. bush's had had a smile on his face. he did not waste a single dollar on florida. the big smile on his face men to it was to " -- meant that it was too close for comfort. they did not waste any money in florida because they won by 530 votes, whatever it was. they obviously do not think like that. they are obviously not trying
that the best thing we could do to stimulate the economy including any actions that that might take is for us to have real fiscal, real balanced fiscal reform? is that not the thing that would cause our economy to take off more than anything else and alleviate the uncertainty that people have that the investing community? >> fiscal reform is very important not only the control of deficits over the long period, but also the quality of fiscal policy. what are we spending our money on? what does the tax code look like? but i think the way the current law is written we have the maximum impact right in the very short run on january 1, 2013, and much less happening over the next decade or the next two decades. so i'm not advocating an overall increase in fiscal spending or anything like that. i'm just saying that the timing should be adjusted to allow the recovery a little bit more space to continue. but to make a serious effort to improve our fiscal policy over the next decade. >> i agree that we should have a better policy than we now have and i think most of the people on this dais are trying to
colleges within the city or state i live in. >> can you give us ideas of what data might be helpful to add to college navigator that can make this a better tool that is useful for veterans? >> degree completion. how many students started a program versus how many students and each program? how many students entered this history department and let with a history degree? how many students got this mechanical degree and got this agreed? how long it took them? that is kind of available at college navigator, but it is not broken down by program. it is hard to synthesize. it is less about finding new data then finding out how to presented to consumers. that is the key. if you do not have something to present to consumers that they can read, that is simple and quantifiable, and the data you are collecting is useless. >> do you think said finding college navigator information is difficult? or is it just the the information is not useful? >> it is not only difficult, but highly inconsistent among its datasets. i talked about a liberal arts college in oakland, california that represented a pretty st

[applause] this is a man, this is a president who has the character of his convictions. almost never since he has taken office, during this entire time, has the republican congress reached across the aisle to help. on the recovery act, which kept us from sliding further into depression, only three republican senators and not one house member voted for it. on the affordable care act, no republican in the senate and none in the house on the final vote. but it was not just on the big- signature issues, it was on the easy, obvious things where we got no cooperation. extending the payroll tax, only seven republicans initially voted for it. lilly ledbetter equal pay, three republicans voted for it in the house. when we attempted to raise the debt limit to maintain the

their way with us and trying to get congress to muster the will to stand up to muster the will to stand up to them, they would simply recommend to congress and congress would vote upper down. these regulations would only take effect of our elected representatives in congress voted to approve them. does that make sense? [applause] this idea did not come from an expert. it did not come from a washington think tank or a university or any of the high- minded elites. it came from a tea party activist in northern kentucky, a man named lloyd rodgers, a wounded navy veteran who worked for about 30 years for cincinnati bell and late in life got involved in politics, a self-taught. he started reading the constitution and taking glasses in public speaking, and one day he handed his congressman a piece of paper with article one section one of the constitution and said congressman, how is it the epa can double or triple my water bill with this down water management consent degree -- which in northern kentucky cost $1 billion -- should there not be a vote on this? i elected you. should there not be a vo
to quite right minded concerns and adapt to them where we can. it's been a real benefit to us a and i'm proud of the team that's responsible for that for the bureau. finally just briefly on the notion of free checking. the federal reserve board had a not insubstantial change to overdraft fee opt-in a couple years ago. we have said we will evaluate how it is the market place has changed since then. we don't actually know how it is the market place has changed until we do the work, and as a result the notion has either promoted or prevented free checking i think is inaccurate. second, i would just point out, not just from this particular job i'm in, but from years prior, there is no free anything. one way or another, product has provided value like institutions tend to charge for one way or another. >> on june 28, they amended regulations to provide that submission of confidential information to the cfpb will not waiver any applicable privilege and to assert that the bureau's transfer of such information to another federal state agency does not waive privilege. how do you address the co

to the statute of our speaker. -- stature of our speaker. let's take a few minutes to provide some useful historical context. to think back to the beginning not only of -- not of this century, but the last. the world today is transfixed by the phenomenon of rapid economic growth in a number of countries that are rapidly treating major powers in the world. of course, the biggest are china and india. some others that would look fairly large in comparison to greet carter -- powers in the past, such as vietnam, russia, indonesia, and brazil. they are becoming much bigger players in the world. 100 years ago, the rise of germany as a great power led to two at catastrophically destructive wars. that also spawned a number of other tragedies, such as nazism and bolshevism, which turned the 20th century, which had begun with a decade of great promise, into the bloodiest in history. we cannot afford to repeat that history with even more terrible weapons of the 21st century. the challenge of managing a merging towers has become, arguably, the major challenge of our time. not that we are short on chal
